Yeah I've never been attracted to either her persona or her music. I have friends who love her (so I have been through that sacrifice friends do for others to listen two/three songs) but I just can't. If tumblrettes and the hipsters from San Francisco/Seattle/Portland/any hipster-Mecca had a love child, her name would be Halsey :drool: Even her tumblr description was cringey to read, we get it, you're totally different from everybody else lol

There is a great relief inside me knowing that here in a few years she'll be irrelevant. We have all seen this coming: an underground musician shows up and becomes mainstream because the 'weird', misfit teens relate to her, they eventually grow up or just abandon her because she's become too much of a sell-out for them, and she falls into oblivion.

Tbh, I really adore her music. I'm into Ruelle too, so it's not exactly surprising. I knew about the rumors about her, i just didn't know she was that gross loll Still love her music but i'll try to not support her lmao. Hope she flop like Iggy Azalea.

I loved her and her music, but she got boring after a while. Never knew she'd lie about her background though :/

Some of her songs are guilty pleasures for me lol didn't she have a thing with the lead singer from the 1975 too? Her and melanie martinez had a little feud going on a while ago as well. I thought she'd stick with the more indie pop route instead of going mainstream... I hate that song she did with the chainsmokers. i always thought that her song new americana sounded a little too much like national anthem by lana del rey.

Apparently she wrote this about matty healy on her tumblr (when she had one, i think she deleted):

"He doesn’t like to cuddle. He likes to grip my hips and pull the fibers of pink tissue in shreds from my lip with his teeth. He throws his hands in the air like a messiah and leans his head out the open window. easy. breathe. codeine. breeze. We laugh loudly and kiss loudly and moan loudly. He mouths vulgar things that make me giggle in front of our friends. I run my hand along the seam off his tight black jeans beneath the table top. He rolls his eyes and smirks at me. We take every opportunity to touch, to feel, so secretly. So public. Exhibitionist pleasure. We play like children, tousling my hair and I climb on his back. We roll spliff after spliff and talk rapidly and vigorously and trip over each others sentences like a sidewalk crack. He says “us” like it means “amen” and his eyes burn wild with a fire of passion. We get drunk. Off of wine and skin and things we love. His smile erupts across his face like it could shatter his cheekbones. His eyes glimmer like a lake catching the glare of the moonlight. A glint of silver is growing up the side of his hairline. He thinks it makes him look distinguished. I laugh and agree. He loves to be so much older than me. He thinks it makes him wise. We spend a lot of time in hotel rooms with the doors shut. (We spend a lot of time outside of hotel rooms with our mouths shut.) He thinks the Xanax makes the sex last longer and I don’t argue. I always wake up first. I sit at the desk and work quietly and glance at him in the sheets. Vulnerable and quiet. Soft face. Soft sounds. A warm cup of coffee and marmalade light through the windows. We bond over love for our brothers. We fight over where the chord change should go. We tease, oh we tease. He likes clean socks and messy hair and he runs his fingers down my overall straps with a tigers grin. He writes his name in the fog on the mirror from where he grabbed a fistful of my hair and pressed my face against the glass. He loves soul music. We sing confidently and triumphantly. I tap my fingers like spiders legs across his bare chest and undo his buttons one by one. I toss my head back and laugh maniacally and pout my lips when he won’t be fair. He speaks like a pastor and trips over his words, his tongue struggles to meet his brain. That’s how a prodigy thinks. (Or it’s the drugs). He knows when my words are about him and he lets it all go to his head and I don’t care because I love to watch him love himself. We laugh and fuck and play and write and plot and say goodbye and never worry. He is my occasional constant. A parody of himself. A paradox of ever present and transparent. I don’t care what he is."

OH LOOOORD THIS IS HILARIOUS *three claps*

no joking, I was reading the whole text and all I could think were those Harlequin novels :happee:

(Except that instead of having the usual Mary Sue and her Mediterranean, rich lover in the islands of Greece you have the cheaper version with edgy Halsey and her "tight black jeans" boy toy in a motel...)

I love her so it's sad to see this. Though I kinda suspected her persona was a facade, I didn't know it was to this extent. It's sad to see. Also, isn't she all about female empowerment and stuff ? Yet she released a song for Fifty Shades Darker, and we all know how rapey and mysoginistic those books/movies are.
